Booked two rooms one for my wife's daughter and a king for us. Our room was not big but it was clean and comfortable for us. It had a desk and a chair along with a good size tv. Microwave was old and it did have a refrigerator. Front desk gals were great. Very helpful about where we needed to... More

We stayed recently for 3 nights, and like most people, we were staying because of a trip to the Mayo clinic. This was the closest hotel to the clinic as well as the surgery suite at the Methodist hospital and it is literally across the street, or if it is raining, the "subway" and the underground walkway connects everything just...

Stayed here for an early morning appt in the Gonda building at Mayo. It is located right across the street. Room would not cool down. Maintenance said the air conditioner was working. He turned it down to 50 and said to put the ironing board in the window to keep the curtains from blocking the cool air. The fan was... More

This is a nice hotel that is just steps away from the world renown Mayo Clinic. I have stayed here several times. The staff is always very accommodating and kind, especially when you have to adjust your stay due to unforseen circumstances. My only complaint about the Kahler Grand is that the bathrooms in the rooms are very dark and... More

This hotel certainly caters to those arriving under stressful circumstances. We were able to check in early and its cancellation policy is great. Very accommodating. The hotel could use some updating but again, generally people are not there for a vacation. Rochester is an interesting City and we can't say enough good things about The Mayo Clinic.

The amenities are good (a nice but extremely expensive steak restaurant, all kinds of shops and restaurants, a Starbucks), and the location can't be beat if you need to be at Mayo, especially the Gonda building or the Eisenberg building. The hotel is from 1921 and doesn't seem to have had much in the way of updates. Our first room... More

A summary - Mold in the shower, dirty carpet & extremely dated furniture/paneling. Windows were so dirty we couldn't see out. The exterior and interior paint is peeling. Parking is $16 per night. Maid service showed up at 5:30PM - very late and we were already settled in. We also requested additional toilet paper which never arrived. Hotel condition seems... More

Stayed last night at the hotel for business trip. Friendly service and clean room (although on the small side). Great bed; small bathroom though with poor lighting. Flat screen tv. Very close to civic center for trade show I attended (walking distance). Overall not a bad place to stay.
